Do you struggle to get going in the morning?
Do you wish you were more get up and go than sit and snooze?
If yes, then the below habits are just what you need to make the most of your mornings.
Whether you repeatedly hit the snooze button or you don’t do anything of note until after 10 am, once you have finished reading this blog, you will be jumping out of bed and ready to tackle the day. Everyday!
1. Get up earlier
Probably not what you want to hear, but if you are prone to setting your alarm as late as possible, then you are already setting yourself up for a chaotic and stressful morning.
Instead, if you want to feel better and get more done, you need to be getting up a little bit earlier. Even just half an hour can allow you to take your time and prepare yourself for the day ahead.
2. Reach for the coffee
A slightly more enjoyable habit, there is absolutely nothing wrong with having a cup of high-quality coffee in the morning to get yourself physically and mentally awake and ready to go.
However, if you usually grab a cup of coffee from Starbucks on your way to work or after the school run, you might want to think about changing this to a more relaxed routine at home.
If you are always running out of coffee, then a coffee club subscription package is just what you need to ensure you always have a delicious blend to hand.
3. Always eat breakfast
If you are not a morning person, then chances are you are not a breakfast person either. However, it is called breakfast for a reason. It literally means to break the fast and is essential if you want to be able to function well in the morning.
Equally important as when you eat is what you eat. Grabbing a sugary muffin or cereal bar is not going to make you feel good for very long. However, some eggs on toast or oatmeal with peanut butter and a banana will make you feel mentally more alert and keep you full for longer.
4. Plan your outfit
Do you get super stressed trying to find something to wear in the morning? Or maybe you always pull on the same pair of jeans and a sweater but never feel great?
Either way, dressing to impress is one highly effective way to make you feel ready for the day ahead. Plus, it can help put you in a positive mood and ensure you feel confident all day long.
5. Make a to-do list
For those who never seem to have enough time, a to-do list can be a life savior. Enabling you to prioritize the most important tasks that you need to do each day, not only will a to-do list make you feel less stressed out in the morning, but it will also deliver a sense of achievement at the end of the day when you see what you have managed to get done.
